Bedabbled!: British Horror and Cult Cinema # 1

Posted by demonik on January 13, 2011

Martin Jones (ed.) – Bedabbled!: British Horror and Cult Cinema # 1 (B!, Feb. 2011)


British Horror & Cult Cinema

Rik Rawling: image taken from Mumsy, Nanny, Sonny and Girly.

Martin Jones – Editorial

Martin Jones – Whatever Happened To Tony Chestnut. The very English Gothic of Mumsy, Nanny, Sonny and Girly.

Sean Crossey – It’s Only A Game: The atmospheric tale of demon worship, self-mutilation and murderous children that is Blood On Satan’s Claw

Julian Upton – Never Never Land: Social realism meets something like horror in Bloody Kids.

Johnny Mains – Further Tales Of Unease: interview with prolific tie-in novelist John Burke.

i’m currently reading through a low-res pdf proof copy and thought i’d best prepare you for the coming of Bedabbled!. Martin Jones’s new publication will appeal to our many British Horror film fiends, particularly those who, all these years later, still carry a torch for Vanessa ‘Girly’ Howard and the scary skull with the wandering eye from Blood On Satan’s Claw. The debut is a ‘Bloody kids’ special (#2 is Cult of Satan!) – and Martin writes in his introduction:

“The canny amongst you may have already guessed that Bedabbled! isn’t going to venture much further than, say, An American Werewolf In London in terms of years covered. You’d be right. Sorry, no Hellraiser, Dust Devil, etc. I can’t speak for other contributors, but it’s my intention to create a new mythology of British screen horror, and within these pages it’ll be done through what I consider to be the most interesting periods of film production this country ever encountered. Aside from the well-documented ‘big three’ (Hammer, Tigon, Amicus), there is a wealth of imaginative material to mine from countless movies (and TV productions) and the insane figureheads of this mag – Mumsy, Vampyres. Goodbye Gemini, Deep End, The Shout – will be featured in some form or another, alongside other works familiar and surprising.”

With the recent British Fantasy Journal howler fresh in mind, i’m not gonna attempt any kind of “review” until i know hard copies have made their way into the customers’ clutches, but i’m predicting a big future for this lively 32 pager. Our friend and colleague, Justin ‘Paperback Fanatic’ Marriott looks after the layout and print management duties, but he’s keen to stress that Bedabbled “is most definitely Martin’s baby” and as babies go, this one has more than a touch of the It’s Alive!‘s about it.

The magazine has no internet presence just yet, but you can order a copy from Martin from:

bedabbledAThotmail.co.uk (as ever, substitute the AT with an @)

Price is £3.50 post-paid UK/ £6.00 world-wide
